As reported on KVMR, on 11/2/18

Hospitality House is the only emergency homeless shelter in Nevada County, with 69 beds for homeless men, women and children.

Now, there’s a special story that I want to share with you all today…It’s an incredible success story of three women, that are all in their 50s.  They have been living at the shelter for about a year, and now they are all going to be co-housing together!  They all come from different walks of life but are now in the same journey of getting back on their feet. Next week, these three ladies are moving in together in their own home!  Janella, Housing Case Manager for Hospitality House has closely been working with these ladies in finding them a safe and stable home to live in. A Case Manager will come to follow up with these ladies individually, and for the course of six months or as needed to make sure there housing situation is sustainable for them.  It’s really exciting to see how these ladies have come together to learn how to budget, how to pay their bills and even how to work together to furnish/decorate their home. Thanks to Wayne Worden from Re-Start Ministries who is ongoingly helping and providing people with donated furniture, for those that don’t have the resources to purchase their own. 

A big thank you to the volunteer dinner groups, who made dinner for 80 guest every night last week:  Telestream, St. Patrick’s Church, Beverly’s Bible, Simple Truth, Crossroads Church, and Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital.
